The application we are initially pursuing is to use the technology to efficiently capture, then extract and recycle Fats, Oils and Greases from commercial restaurants and kitchens. The reclaimed oils can be used to create biodiesel.

Our solution reduces truck movements, improves asset utilisation, diverts waste from landfill and low value end uses, reduces odour and pests for customers and importantly helps reduce Fats, Oils and Greases going to sewer.

We are based in Sydney Australia, founded in 2014, our company has been working with leading water authorities and global Quick Service Restaurant brands to validate our technology.

Now out in the market and building our customer base, we are determined to build an environmentally responsible business that is sustainable through generating profit.
